Research reveals the benefits of massaging Your Spouse
Who does not like to receive a delicious massage? At the end of the day, when all our activities close and we feel tired and full of tension pains, a massage is restorative, especially when done by someone we love. Besides relaxing, we can feel all the warmth that this moment deserves.
Well, recent research from the University of Northumbria, UK, has evaluated the good that a couples massage does on both. And they came to the conclusion that if both of you know the least about this technique the benefits in the body and in the relationship of the couple improves, a lot.
To reach this conclusion, the research involved nineteen couples. Over a period of three weeks, they all underwent a short course to learn the basics of massage techniques.
Every time they went to the course they filled out a brief questionnaire that assessed their physical well-being, satisfaction in their relationships, stress level, and how they were dealing with the couple’s problems. At the end of the classes, the questionnaire was filled out again.
What was curiously perceived by the researchers is that research showed improvements in all items after the time spent together learning the techniques of massage, especially the question about how they faced problems and satisfaction in their relationship.
The levels of well-being were also much better, in addition to that, all items remained that way for a few weeks even after the end of the course.
Another curiosity of the research is that the massages were not only good for those who received them, the spouse who did the massage also had increased values in their answers.
